Minister for Communications, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful had been summoned by Parliament over the ranging controversial eighty-nine million dollars ($89m)Kelni GVG contract to block revue leakages in the telecommunication sector.   .

The second deputy speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin issued the directive upon requests from some MPs for details of the contract.

MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, said the Kelni GVG contract is an issue that has engaged the attention of the whole country and the minister needs to clarify the issue.

Mr. Ablakwa added that Parliament’s silence on the issue makes the House appears not to be proactive.

“Another agenda to this meeting which is the matter which has engaged the attention of the whole country, the  Kelni GVG matter. I’m wondering if the Minister for Communications cannot  be programmed  to appear before us in the ensuing week because out there the national debate is that it will appear as though Parliament is not being proactive. Civil society organizations are asking why Parliament  has been  silent on this matter and it’s raging on and on. And this morning apart from the Anas expose’ is the biggest matter which is being discussed and this is not a matter that can be resolved in the media, Parliament must carry out its oversight responsibility”, he said.
